Hurricane Matthews path unfortunately rocked our family Whitney & Jesse Hines business Surfin' Spoon frozen yogurt store in Nags Head, NC. They would NEVER ask for help but they really do need some extra aid to help get them up and running again and cushion their unanticipated loss of income. The repairs needed will keep them from being able to operate for months and months to come...

Neither the owner of their building or the Hines had flood insurance coverage since the last time there was any flooding was back in 1962 and it was caused by huge waves. Therefore EVERYTHING needed to repair the damage will be an out of pocket expense.

This flood was caused by Hurricane Matthews accumulated rain which rose up to 1 1/2 feet within the Spoon causing extensive water damage. They potentially lost 5 frozen yogurt machines, 3 freezers, 1 refrigerator, merchandise and everything that makes a yogurt store functional.

To make matters even more pressing and stressful, they also have a little one making his debut in January 2017.

Whitney, Jesse and their son Bear are the most selfless, loving, all around awesome family. Even though they are in this difficult situation they are also concerned for other locals losses. They want to make sure they are not just 'takers' and plan to donate 10% of whatever is raised to other locals in need.

Any amount you can donate would be greatly appreciated!

Let's do this!!

Much love...

Exactly 6 weeks after Hurricane Matthew came and took over, the Surfin' Spoon hobbit door has finally opened back up to all of our awesome customers! We are so thankful, so tired, but so thankful!! You know... a hurricane, a flood, drying a building out, and renovating has a lot. . . . .

Two Week Update!

Update posted by Whitney Hines at 01:27 am

Let's be honest... two weeks has felt a little more like two months. Fans, dehumidifiers, and even heaters have been running full speed ahead. Who knew that it would take soooo long for the walls and studs to dry out at the Spoon so we can get some rebuilding done?. . . . .
